10 Ugliest Titans in Attack on Titan (AoT)
Listed in no particular order, our list of 10 ugly titans in AoT checks all the boxes of ugliness, from their faces to their entire bodies.
1. Cart Titan
Voted as one of the ugly Titans in AoT according to fans of the anime series, the cart Titan is a cart or platform carrying Titan who is not considered strong enough for combat but fast enough to be used as a scout and transporting weapons and other objects.
This Titan doesn’t walk upright like other titans, rather crouches on all fours. Cart Titan’s crouching physique, elongated jaw, wide mouth, and weird-looking facial proportions have earned the Titan a place in the ugly Titans in AoT.
True to its name, Cart titan carries on its back what seems like a platform or a cart of some sort where multiple objects can be stored. The cart Titan is neither remarkable for good looks nor strength but is good for his speed, scouting, and transportation abilities.

- Quadrupedal form (Crouches and walks on all fours)
- Very elongated reptilian-looking jaw
- Wide mouth/lips
- Disproportionate facial features
- Numerous Teeth
2. Rod Reiss’ Pure Titan
When Rod Reiss transforms into his Titan form, he can be considered one of the ugly titans in AoT. Also, one of the largest Titans in AoT, standing at about 120 m tall, this Titan is enormous and generates a lot of heat from its movement.
Considered as one of the most gruesome-looking Titans in Attack on Titan, Rod Reiss’ Titan form is very ugly with a huge torso and disproportionate, very thin limbs and head. This Titan drags itself on its belly as it slitters its enormous form around. This abnormal Titan has its internal organs exposed as a result of the Titan dragging its belly as it moves.
The Titan’s face also appears to be scraped away, exposing its brains and scrapped off facial parts due to being constantly dragged on the ground as he moves. Rod Reiss’ Titan form lacks muscles and looks skeletal with exposed internal organs and exposed rib cage on the sides shooting out like sharpened arrows. Although its face regenerates when it is off the ground, Rod Reiss Titan’s form is one of the ugliest in AoT.

Characterized by an over 90% rib form, Eren Yeager’s Founding Titan form is one of the 10 ugly Titans in AoT. Very different from its attack titan form, this monstrous founding Titan is composed of mainly bones gutting menacingly out of its spine, resembling Godzilla’s back.
Eren’s founding Titan form resembles a mountainous rib cage with extremely long spiky backbones and undersized legs and pelvis. Walking with ribs resembling a millipede, this sinewy Titan is as terrifying as it is ugly.
